navels are sick. they are the remains of a tube that fed you when you were a blob of undifferentiated tissue living inside another animal that had to be cut and literally tied shut. they are a hole into your guts.

Yeah they are gross. So are eyes, they are sacks of fluid stuck into your skull. The worst part is they are hooked into your brain, totally gross.

Reminds me of Random Access Memory, which has been around forever.

How do you loose your virginity?
How do I answer this? I loosened it up around 14. I almost lost it around 15 but I was able to tighten it up. But then it came loose and fell off around 17.

The Experience project looks interesting. Must check out.

I can imagine getting some skewed results from asking such questions to an internet site that require you to create a unique account to post.

"Is it normal that I'm spending over a dozen hours a week posting to online link aggregaters and blogs?"

"Is it normal that I can't hold a conversation without referencing Reddit?"

"Is it nrml that I'm like ORLY owl instead of OMG cat when my BFF tells me some scumbag steve gave her a tl;dr look when she wanted some Hey Girl support?"

Hey Girl Support sounds like the hipster bra equivalent of OK Soda.

@ad hominem

they're so fragile

anything could render you alone in darkness forever. a thumb, a paperclip, a beam of light you can't even see. anything

The worst part about having eyes is that even if I could replace them with CCD cameras I don't think I could go through with it. I would be like "OMG they are going to do what to my eyes? Nuh-uh"

This guy's experience of a lost dog? He needs breast milk.

@hecho

based on the spelling errors and the fact that he thinks breast milk can cure cancer i would guess he's either mentally ill or foreign and not really educated. i guess either way it would be hilarious to imagine him trying to get breast milk? like a farrely bros movie?

Oh wow please don't do the @ thing here, TOCATY, it's not really necessary.

Neat idea for a site. It's a shame a sign-up is required to browse it.

It's actually not -- you can just close the sign-up window if it pops up and continue to browse.

Like all parts of the internet, this site is brimming with the saccharine and the wtf.
